Torres ready to go on a goal spree for Chelsea, says Malouda

Chelsea forward Florent Malouda has warned Manchester United that Fernando Torres will only go from strength to strength after he began repaying his £50million transfer fee with his first goal for the club.

Torres ended a 15-hour wait for his first goal in Chelsea colours when he beat Robert Green to score the second goal in the Blues' 3-0 hammering of West Ham on Saturday.

The Spaniard has endured a torrid time at Stamford Bridge since his arrival for a British-record transfer fee and the relief of finally opening his account was clear as he celebrated the strike by sliding on his knees in front of the home crowd.

“The first one is always important and you could see everyone was very happy,” said Malouda.

Chelsea now trail the Red Devils by six points and must win their remaining games to stand any chance of denying Sir Alex Ferguson's men a record-breaking 19th championship.

“That's our object until the end of the season,” Malouda added. “Winning the title will be difficult. The only thing we are looking at is winning every game.”
